, in alameda county and directing the clerk of the board of supervisors to notify the controller of this action. >> [speaker not understood]. >> [speaker not understood]. the item before you today is to adopt the c-e-q-a findings for the geary bridge project. it is located in snow california and crosses over all immediate a creek within the snow regional wilderness area. the purpose of the project is to replace an existing wooden bridge with a new concrete and steel bridge that can accommodate vehicular and pedestrian traffic. the existing bridge was constructed in the 1930s and refurbished in the 1960s. the maximum loading capacity is limited to 8 tons and this restricts fire, maintenance, and cattle transport vehicles from accessing the bridge. these vehicles must use a nearby low water creek crossing to access facilities within the watershed and can only do so when water levels allow. we have been working with various agencies to eliminate low water creek crossings within our watershed and this is one of them. the main purpose of the project is to construct a new bridge that can accommodate
having it on committee reserve. in either case it's going to require action by the committee to release the reserve and it might be simpler to just simply reserve balances over 100,000 for the committee's action. if you desire to have the item come back before the committee on a regular basis for action, if you're comfortable delegating that authority and having a written report, then i agree with the puc's suggestion. but if you're not comfortable with simply receiving a quarterly report on what's planned and being spent to our office releasing the reserve, i think it's simpler administratively to leave it on committee reserve. >> if i can, perhaps i can suggest if i can rollover this item for just a second and have the puc to consult with folks and make sure it works out programmatically for you. so if you do come on a quarterly basis, does that hold up your projects, do you expect that would be okay? and then we'll come right back to it. could you call item number 10, please. >> item number 10, ordinance amending the san francisco business and tax regulations code by amending article

and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining a historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership, the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. the proposal for more armed guards in schools may be helpful in some instances, but it falls short of the strong, serious comprehensive action needed to stop the kind of horrific tragedy that occurred last week. many police that spoke to me on that day when we take a said that the killer was so heavily armed that they doubted they could have stopped him. the american people are demanding real change. the nra proposal fails to offer any real protection from violence. members in connecticut and around the country are writing and calling me to say that the nra does not speak for them. it was a call for action. the nra has failed to answer the call. we need to do something about these guns, about the assault weapons, the kind that was used in the new town tragedy. i am very proud to join and senator feinstein oppose the bill that will help put a stop to the proliferation of the assault weap

's market action. european shares gave up ground on the final trading day of the week. our correspondents and as the summary from the frankfurt stock exchange. >> hopes fading at the stock market u.s. politicians may reach a deal on time, alarming traders. consumers on both sides of the atlantic are also worried. pessimism is growing, and this was a burden for the stock market at the end of the week, but the german dax could keep small gains throughout the week. bets on single shares are expiring, leading to a very volatile trading. >> we stay in frankfurt for a closer look at friday's numbers. the dax had finished the session down by nearly 0.5% -- 7636 points. your socks 50 -- euro stoxx 50 giving up 0.25%. the euro slightly weaker against the dollar, trading at a value of $1.3175. >> turning to france now where the economy is set to show minimal growth in first half of next year, according to the french national statistics institution, who predict a rise of 0.1%. >> france's economy also barely grew over the course of this year, but in what many analysts see as overly optimistic, paris

that you would have, if it is decided that one of these two actions are taken? >> if i could, commissioner, i could show you a photo at the rear, that will illustrate the point we're trying to make about the side setback and the loss of light or air. so this shows the relationship of ma's house to the current structure. the proposal is to bring it back to this retaining wall which is the same depth as all the neighboring buildings, exeft except ma's home. the fact because ms. ma's home is at a lower elevation there really is no significant impact on the light that comes into the property and that's what the shadow analysis we provided shows. most of the rear is shaded already by this fence. and by bringing it back, and then by notching it out the way we've proposed, the shadow analysis we've done shows there really subject a significant impact on light and air. on your specific question i would need to check with the project sponsor about which of those two proposals would be the least onerous to them but we really think that the way we adjusted it first with the three foot setback and the

's available to us today to signal a demand to our congress that we really need a plan and a plan and an action to follow that, to ban these assault weapons and to make sure that we do everything we can to create a higher level of safety throughout the country. assault weapons and the types of things that we've seen in the hands of people who are doing evil or can do evil really have no place, in the home or in the schools or in our streets. and, so, with that we ask ourselves what we can do locally. i also want to recognize the three state senators, senator de leon, state senator leland yee and state senator ted gains, all three of which are sponsoring some five different pieces of state legislation aimed at banning assault weapons and munitions, getting higher levels of background checks and registries, and also i think senator gains is attempting to also make sure that those that have backgrounds of mental health challenges are lifetime bans of possessing these weapons. again, in an attempt to do what we can. in san francisco, we tried to ban assault weapons some years ago. we were unsuccess

other benefit that was cited in the after action review and also was mentioned today is the chance it meet someone else from the other agency. we also heard a lot about training, understanding ics, understanding dsca and that's defense support of civil authorities. it's the guiding principles for how our armed services are going to support civilians when something happens. and i think those are common across a lot of the themes you are going to hear today and throughout the weekend. so i'd kind of like to take those two off the table because they are sort of gimmes and put it to you, what are the things you told your boss about this exercise and what is something that for next year you would like to see us do? michelle, if you'd start us off. >> so i think that the major task for next year when we do this communications drill, which i hope we continue to do, and i think you mentioned this earlier, we assumed that all of the city's primary communications were online and operational. we used 800 megahertz push to talk radios here. we assumed that system was online and operation
